  • My mom and my sister is mentally abusive what can I do?

    I am 15 year old and I am thinking of running away from home. My mom is always yelling at me. The way my mom talks to me has a mental abuse on my life. She always demands me to be more like my sister and I never have opinion on my own life. At first she would just hit me really badly with ruler and everything that would leave marks on me and sometimes be stuck into my skin bleeding. Lately that has been less and she is now more mentally abusive she says that I won’t get anywhere in life that I am dumb and I can’t do anything. She treats me differently from my sister. When I make a mistake she tells me I am crazy. I used to be a sweet child but now this emotional abuse has made me very angry when I get angry she threatens to hit me and she tells me I am crazy there is something wrong with me and that I have something bad with me. My sister always scolds me but if I say something back my mom always takes her side and tells me she is right If I say something back she tells me to apologies. I have no control over my life I would avoid them by going to school but now because of them my life outside home is mostly a lie and since school is closed I don’t know what to do. Lately I cry myself to sleep . I have been doing self harm. Yesterday she wanted me to eat a lot I said no since I wasn’t hungry and she came with a stick to hit me. She likes to take control over everything I do, I don’t think I can take it anymore. I want to runaway but I don’t have anyone to go to and what if they find me. I have been thinking of killing my self I don’t think I can take anymore. Please help.
